Family History and DNA


The use of selected DNA markers for family history research is becoming more and more common and sophisticated. Our Clan Sennachie, Grahame Thom, is interested to hear from any member who has had their DNA tested for genealogical purposes or who is thinking of requesting a test. He can be contacted by clicking here. Thank you.

We are keen to commemorate the start of the First World War in 1914 by publishing articles on the website describing the contribution that MacThomas Clansfolk made to the war effort.


If you can compose such an article then please contact the Sennachie.

Thom information required.


Member, Martina Thom, is trying to complete her family tree. She is trying to establish the parents of Robert Thom who married Margaret Ritchie in May 1807 at New Monkland in Lanarkshire. They had at least three children, Robert in November 1807, James in June 1809 and William in March 1811.


Martina would like to make contact with anybody else researching Robert and Margaret. If you can help please contact the Sennachie who will be happy to put you in touch.

Treasurer needs help!!

(And not with the Accounts)


Society Treasurer & Webmaster, Jon Hedges, is keen to develop his personal family tree - if he ever finishes this website and has a little more time on his hands. To quote Finegand - "You will not know what to do with your time next year Jon!".


Jon is the Great Great Grandson of George Thoms, the brother of Patrick Hunter MacThomas Thoms, the 15th Chief of the Clan. Using this and the Chief's family tree he has managed to trace his ancestry back to the 1500's - click here.


However there lots of branches that still need filling in order to complete the picture. If you have information that might help please contact Jon via the following link - Treasurer.
